Hardness of Stainihard®NC

Stainihard®NC : 1200-1500 HV0,01

The above hardness refers to the hardness on the surface if it is measured in a cross-section of the layer. Regular hardness measured on the surface is: 1000-1400 HV0.05 at a depth of 10 to 30 µm.

The hardening depth of Stainihard® NC depends on the type of stainless steel, the surface condition and the degree of deformation. With increasing surface deformation the layer depth decreases.
